Some people go to a psychotherapist and get their heads fixed but unless body work is used, the body tensions will put the issues back into the mind again.
When the body cannot relax neither will the mind.
But a head is a part of the body is it not?

All that makes sense but I'm not your typical guy. I've never been in a fight my whole life, over forty years, and probably couldn't defend myself against a unarmed four year old girl. To me it just looks like funny movements pushing around air.
I'll admit, I'm pretty lame. Couldn't even be normal and get into a fight, even once, so arts like this are completely foreign to me.
Tyche (English /ˈtaɪki/; from Greek: Τύχη, meaning "luck"; Roman equivalent: Fortuna) was the presiding tutelary deity that governed the fortune and prosperity of a city, its destiny. She is the daughter of Aphrodite and Zeus or Hermes.
Increasingly during the Hellenistic period, cities venerated their own specific iconic version of Tyche, wearing a mural crown (a crown like the walls of the city).
The Greek historian Polybius believed that when no cause can be discovered to events such as floods, droughts, frosts or even in politics, then the cause of these events may be fairly attributed to Tyche.
In ancient Greek culture, Dikē (Greek: Δίκη, English translation: "justice") was the spirit of moral order and fair judgement based on immemorial custom, in the sense of socially enforced norms and conventional rules. According to Hesiod (Theogony, l. 901), she was fathered by Zeus upon his second consort, Themis.
Tyche is the explanation we have for when we have no explanation.
As for psychotherapy, so long as they rely on looking at and moaning about memories while not working the underlying chemical responses enough for someone to get a handle on them, they are just spinning 50 minute gold for themselves for the decades that the person will come in and moan about their lives, or try to find some answers when that particular field isn't providing right now.
People romanticize martial arts and fighting. But let's get real there is nothing to romantic about it. Either you engaged needlessly or were smart and defused the situation and walked away. Rarely is a fight not an outcome of ones personal failure to the situation.
